Important dates on the Chassidic Calander 2 of Iyar: Birthday of the Rebbe Maharash
This Friday, April 28 is the 2nd of Iyar, the birhtday of the Rebbe Maharash, the 4th rebbe of Chabad.
The fourth Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch, Rabbi Shmuel of Lubavitch, was born in the town of Lubavitch (White Russia) in the year 5594 (1834).
Rabbi Shmuel was the youngest of seven sons born to Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch, the third Chabad Rebbe, known as the "Tzemach Tzedek," and Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka. At an early age Rabbi Shmuel excelled in his studies; by the age of seven he was proficient in large sections of the Talmud along with the commentaries. Rabbi Menachem Mendel would regularly administer tests his son’s class and grant monetary prizes to those who excelled. With that money Rabbi Shmuel would purchase books of Torah study.
Rabbi Shmuel, who throughout his life suffered from many ailments, passed away at the young age of 48, on the 13th of the Hebrew month of Tishrei in the year 5643 (1882). He is buried alongside his father in the city of Lubavitch.
